Thanks for not including the claims that will undoubtedly be made by organized religions, and their clergy. The editorial staff at the Strib mentioned the overload of lies and rhetoric during the recent election, specifically mentioning women's basic health rights and access to this important medication. Our society as a whole need not consider the multitudes of differing beliefs among the religions and their followers.

An in other news, a recent study published in the Journal Cancer Epidemiology indicates that abortion TRIPLES the rates of breast cancer experienced by older women in Sri Lanka. This is the 4th such study to indicate this in the last 14 months. The others have been done in the US, China and Turkey.

The best way to make it accessible is to lower the cost. Simply shifting the cost to others doesn't lower the cost one iota. In fact, it likely will increase the cost.

How about the potential cause and effect that has already been shown is that if you have a child earlier in your child bearing years, and breast feed, then you might reduce your chances of breast cancer, but even that has been somewhat debunked.
